HOW TO MAKE BROWNIES
✓ LINE YOUR BAKING PAN: To make it super easy for you to cut these brownies into squares, line your 13×9 inch baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving enough overhang on the sides and spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray. Once the brownies have cooled lift the brownies out of the pan, folding down the aluminum foil sides. Use a sharp knife to cut these brownies into squares and enjoy!
✓ CUTTING BROWNIES INTO SQUARES: The secret to cutting brownies is to use a plastic knife or a silicone spatula because they don’t have sharp edges for the brownies to stick to, so they cut more smoothly. Also, make sure that the brownies are COMPLETLY COOLED before cutting.
